We'll let it slide UDL, it is draft day after all.

:mex:
Its a strain thats 60/40 indica dominant so as i sink into that couch i have these revelations...so to speak

I forgot we have parent teacher interviews at 1230...drinking oj and coffee right now. I have 2 hours.
Going to just nod and agree with everything
We have two alleged teachers in this forum... think about some of the things they have posted.

Are you sure you want to blindly agree with everything Dan... THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!

No no no, pack another bowl and save the world my brother!
Lol i should've...i went alone as the wife couldn't make it. I imagined Todd was one of the teachers pontificating on about the merits of consumer education courses LOL! Wtf is that?

The kid is going into grade 12 and i told them as long as she can graduate by next june then they can shove her in as many communist indoctrination programs as they want. I probably fucked up there...oh well back to the bong i go

For me either Boqvist or Whalstrom I would be happy with. Unless Zardina falls to us.

My only small concern with boqvist is he's had two concussions I heard, could be dangerous or not...the big IF.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Fair enough, didn't know that. I would stay away from Hughes, for what I have read he is very small. Think he would be another Jordan Subban.

wahlstrom
boqvist
smith
kotkaniemi
I bolded the sweet spot. Just need Detroit to pick Hughes and Montreal to take Kotkanemi and we'll get one of them. If all three are gone, grab Boqvist.
Yeah if the habs take Jesperi Kotkaniemi a quality dman will drop, even Wahlstrom if picked in the top 6 I think the Yotes are high on him.

What we need is for the Habs to go off the board and draft Kotkaniemi. Then it gets interesting

The Habs are taking Zadina


But yes I agree with your take. If Dobson and Tkachuk are gone and Kotkaniemi is still there I would absolutely take him over the dwarf or Bouchard

Funny the highest vote getting dman ends up being selected last of the four that were talked about.
The least votes goes before the other three (I would say no votes except for the after the fact fake news Trump and Putin loving commie voters).
We are all Jim Benning.
